My last post as a virgin


This is my last and final post as a virgin - marathon virgin that is! :D I have to furiously wash some clothes tonight and pack. Looks like the weather is going to be great too! Low of 41 and high of 70 and no chance of rain. Sweet! So, I'm taking my half tights, a sleeveless singlet, my thin running jacket, ear warmers and pair of disposable cotton gloves. Layer, layer, layer! My family is getting so excited. We run by my niece's school at mile 1 and then by my sis-in-laws work at mile 9. And she said there are about 10-12 people from her work running this race too!

I have to drop the babies off at the vet to be boarded this afternoon. :( I always have major separation anxiety and guilt when I have to drop them off the night before. The house is WAY too quiet when they're not home. But we get to pick them up on Monday and they always take good care of them.

I took your advice and invested in some Tylenol PM last night. It DID the trick. I got a great nights sleep and it calmed me down a bit.

Ok - so much to do, so little time to do it and if I stop to think about it I'll go into freak out mode. I still can't believe I'm doing this!!!

I promise a full report upon return and lots and lots of pictures!

Today I LOVE: All the awesome encouragement, support and well wishes I've gotten from my online running buddies. Thanks GUYS!!!

Believe it! You WILL do this and you WILL be a different person when it's over. You're entering an exclusive club and I'm so proud of you. Think of all the time and effort you put into this while you're running. Remember all the little things that you've overcome.

Remember this moment!
